St George's Square
Huddersfield HD1 1JF
Please come and join in with us for an hour to encourage our council to make better cycling provision in Kirklees.
We are asking supportive councillors and candidates to post their pledge of support into our Big Ballot Box. Those that cannot attend are being asked to give us Proxy Pledges to post.
To all this we will be cheering, ringing bike bells and honking horns.
The Programme Outline:
10am Bike riders meet up at Magic Rock Brewery Huddersfield
(on corner of Willow Lane and St Johns Road) where there is free car parking available for those that need it.
10:15 Commence a short half hour group ride in and around the town centre (bikes and riders are encouraged to look festive)
11:00 Riders arrive in St Georges Square where they will be met by other supporters of ‘Space for Cycling’.
The politicians/local councillors and candidates who are present or their proxies will be thanked and then be photographed putting their pledges of support for Space for Cycling in Kirklees into the large mock ballot box. (This done to the ringing of bike bells and other noises of approval from the onlookers).
11:30 After a brief thank you to everyone from the organisers, the crowd disperses. Some people on bikes will want to ride back together to Magic Rock brewery where they’ll have some alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage, and possibly some food, before making their way home.
We are hoping for a good range of different cyclists with different types of bikes. Families with children are especially welcome.
We’re also hoping that there will be an good number of non-cycling and ‘would-be’ cyclists among the supporters.
There will be a pop-up table in St Georges Square for new supporters to register and receive future information and newsletters.
KCC will only use photos of children taken at the event if they have the parent’s permission.
It will be assumed that other people attending are happy for KCC to take photographs of them and possibly use them for KCC publicity purposes. Should this not be the case, please let it be known to the person at the supporters registration table in St Georges Square and we will act accordingly on the instruction.
